Persona 4 Arena And More Available On Xbox One Via Backwards Compatibility (VIDEO)
Let’s face it, Microsoft listened to the fans and incorporated a key feature into the Xbox One line of consoles: backwards compatibility. Microsoft has worked hard to continuously add to the list of Xbox 360 (and now original Xbox) games playable on the latest Microsoft consoles. The latest four titles to make the cut have been revealed and includes Persona 4 Arena.
For the kids, Cars: Mater-National will allow for fans to race across the country controlling their favorite characters from Disney/Pixar’s Cars. If you’re into puzzle games, the classic 360 version of Jewel Quest has been added to the lineup. Sports fans weren’t left out either! The arcade-style football game, Tecmo Bowl has also been added.
The latest round of backwards compatible titles really stands out due to the inclusion of Persona 4 Arena. This fighting game set in the world of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 acts as a direct sequel to the fourth entry into the Persona franchise. Its 2012 release on PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360 received countless praises from critics and fans alike. The game even features characters from Persona 3, which was a major fan service that was well-received.
Although Persona 4 wasn’t released on Xbox 360, Arena still did quite well, selling nearly 10,000 copies in its debuting week. The title sold much better on PlayStation 3, which is most likely accredited to the fact that it was a PlayStation exclusive. Either way, as a fan of the franchise, you can now play Persona 4 Arena on your Xbox One consoles.
